Just wanted to share this way to cool coaster tutorial I found on "The Cottage Home". I am so excited for Monday to come now because I can't wait to go to my local hardware store & get the supplies to get this project started. Make sure you check out the other great ideas on The Cottage Home http://www.thecottagehome.blogspot.com/. Happy Sunday everyone.
Hugs & Kisses Curly.
There's nothing better than a handmade gift. And what better way to celebrate than with some fun, festive coasters. These coasters are made from inexpensive tiles from the hardware store and are embellished with fun, designer scrapbook paper.
Make these coasters as a gift or make them for your home - either way, they are sure to get noticed!
4 square tiles from your local hardware store (4.25" x 4.25")
4 pieces of scrapbook paper (3.75" x 3.75")
4 pieces of felt (3.75" x 3.75")
Glue (i.e. Fabri-tac or other strong adhesive)
Clear acrylic sealer
Podge onto tile.
podge on top of paper. Allow to dry 15 minutes and repeat 2-3 more times.
5. After mod podge is dry, take tiles outside and spray with clear acrylic sealer. Follow manufacturers instructions. The sealer makes these tile coasters water-resistant.
Wrap four of these coasters up with some beautiful ribbon and you've got a gorgeous handmade gift.
And finally, grab yourself a cocktail and toast to a wonderful New Year!
